Question about 1997 Chrysler Sebring
Okay when i turn on my car, my indoor fuse blows and my throttle cable gets SUPER hot when i put a 30amp in there. if i rub the throttle cable against the air intake, it SPARKS!!! do you think its the same problem as this? what could fix this? im sooo worried about this. like non of my lights come on in the car, my beeping sounds in the car dont work (like for seatbelts), radio doesnt come on at all. Whats the problem? it randomly started to do this after i replaced the door handle on my car, and i changed the EGR valve under the hood.. please help!
Hi just pass-in and read your problem
Would recommend checking the earth strap from battery -ve to chassis sounds like its very poor drawing a earth from were ever it can get it. Also check and make shiney any other straps from gearbox or engine to chassis reminds me of the good old minis boy did they glow if you forgot to refix the earth strap.

Retrace your work. It is obvious you have 12 volts or so going where it is not suppose too. This is interesting and you gave lots of detail. I could use lot more if you get closer to the problem. Pull out every fuse, one at a time. check the sparking but do it with a volt meter pos to cable blk to ground or batt grd. Put them back and continue one at a time till you find the circuit that stops the sparks as you say. Then you found the circuit that is short to ground. In this case only when you do your cable thing. Then you have to work that one circuit to fix. Iam going to guess because Iam not there to help you the door handle has a roll in this or wiring you may have disturbed. You have a short or hot wire powering up something and the cable is your ground but no load for a voltage drop ,so you get 12volt and sparks. NOT GOOD
